You may choose to raise and restump your house for a number of reasons, the most common being that you are raising to build in underneath the house to create extra room or your house may be unlevel due to decaying stumps.
Below is a list of the process involved with raising and restumping a house.
1. Engineering Plans
Soil test may be required
2. Quotes from Contractors
Contact experienced companies for a quote for the work required.
3. Choosing the type of stumps
You can choose between steel stumps, adjustable steel stumps and timber stumps. We usually use adjustable steel stumps, timber stumps are usually used for the exterior stumps of Queenslander homes.
4. Raising the house
The house is then separated from its foundation and temporarily raised using hydraulic jacks.
5. Positioning the house
The house can be relocated to a new position or can be raised to the agreed height.
6. Restumping the house
The house is then lowered onto the new stumps and secured.
7. Organise follow-up Trades
You may need to organise electricians, plumbers, carpenters and concreters to finish other works to your house
